Bits of Humor from old time vaudeville:

  • Patient: 'I have a ringing in my ears.' 
    Doctor: 'Don't answer!'
  • The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, 'Mrs. Cohen, your check came back.' Mrs. Cohen answered, 'So did my arthritis!' 
  • The Doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn't pay his bill, so the doctor gave him another six months.

Best of Health to you!

Marvelous Miracle of Sprouts

In biblical times, the prophet Daniel prescribed "pulses" or sprouts to the king's servants to demonstrate the health-giving power of these foods. After ten days, the servants were "better in appearance" than the youths who ate the king's rich meals.

While Daniel may have intuitively known that sprouts are healthful, science has only recently discovered that sprouts contain an amazing array of protective ANTIOXIDANT ENZYME substances. In sprouts, as in all other young stages of life, antioxidant enzymes are present to protect tissue building materials from cell destroying FREE RADICALS.

Free radicals are simply highly unstable molecules that disrupt healthy cells and tissues.

Many factors combine to overwhelm cells with excess free radicals. Environmental pollution, radiation, excess sun, over exertion, and poor nutrition create an unhealthy cell environment. Diets rich in antioxidant nutrients contained in fresh foods, especially sprouts, help to maintain a healthy cellular environment

Fortunately, BIOPHARMS -- The Enzyme Company has discovered a way to provide the antioxidant enzyme nutrition of sprouts in a practical, convenient form. Botanists at BIOPHARMS -- The Enzyme Company are able to "teach" organically grown wheat sprouts how to produce high levels of nutrients. Additionally, BIOPHARMS has found ways to pack over a quart of these unique "super sprouts" into each tablet/caplet through careful dehydration techniques. Containing no starch, gluten, yeast, or sugar, The Enzyme Company "super sprouts" are safe and nutritious food supplements for people of all ages.

"Side Effects" - Bad Substitute for the Real Thing!

The word "side" has a multitude of uses in the English language. It is used over and over again for many different meanings and lends itself to other words to create a multitude of ambiguous, suggestive, and descriptive nouns or adjectives.

We use "side" for every possible type of meaning; inside out, sideways, side kick, sidelines, sunny side up, side interest, take sides, outside, side dish, bright side, side of beef, up side down, right side up, seamy side, and the most ominous use is "SIDE EFFECTS".

"Side effect" is defined as a consequence other than that, for which an agent is used, especially an adverse effect on another organ.

The word "side" somehow suggests the perception that there is a benefit occurring simultaneously. This is where the pharmaceutical industry employs semantics and language to create an illusion. If a drug makes a person feel ill, then that is the effect of the drug. If it makes a person feel good, then that is an effect of the drug. Rarely does a person experience a drug where it makes them feel good and bad at the same time.

If a person becomes paralyzed, has a stroke, attempts suicide, or dies it seems trivial and flippant to name such effects as "side effects". They are without doubt effects that fall in the category of "Bad" effects. The FDA allows this suggestive language and has other notable areas of verbal inaccuracy. The FDA substitutes the term "discontinuation" for "withdrawal", but that's another story.

The FDA should require accurate language banning the use of "side effects" as warnings and replace the term with "bad effects" which more accurately communicates an immediate call to the doctor, stopping use of the drug, and re-evaluating the prescribed drug.

"Side effects" suggest that bad effects may occur but to continue use until the benefits of the drug become evident. Too often someone witnesses a bad reaction to a drug and still continues use because they perceive the effects as somewhat harmless, part of the cure, just a simple "side effect" not reacting soon enough to stop the drug as the person goes into nausea, possible stroke, coma or death.

"Bad effects" give a clearer understanding to the use and dangers of the prescribed drug. Perception is everything for the consumer and clarity in language regarding health dangers should be made mandatory by the FDA! Eliminate the term "side" and in its place use the term "bad". It could save lives!
